Amsterdam Light Festival - Open Top Boat
A good canal cruise in Amsterdam at night is ALWAYS magic, but the addition of these amazing light installations really made this a must see event, even if you've visited Amsterdam many times.

We saw Amsterdam by night that is already really nice and the light festival adds something to it. Also the captain was nice.

Amsterdam Light Festival - Open Top Boat
We had an issue because I purchased open boat tickets and got to the line for a semi open boat and the man at the entrance assured me this was right. When I got to the front of the queue before getting on two other men told me this was the wrong one and I will miss the boat further down. We ran to get that boat and were told that we had it right in the first place and there was no such thing as an open boat even though it said so on the ticket. Very confusing and we missed the first time so had to wait 45 minutes for the next one. I really wasn’t happy but the experience was great.
